When it comes to jewellery, I’ve always leaned more towards colourful, affordable fashion pieces, and over the last few weeks, I’ve accumulated some new items to add to my collection. I did some in-store shopping at J.Crew and Winners, and some online shopping at JustFab. More info on my finds, below!
J.Crew Floral Stud Earrings
Lately, I’ve been loving oversized, shiny studs, and when I saw these in-store, I knew I had to have them (unfortunately, I can’t seem to find them online). What I love about these earrings is that you can pair them with a cocktail dress, and they’ll look classic and elegant, but you can also wear them to help dress up simple skinny jeans and a t-shirt. Another thing I love about them, is that the earring backs are incredibly durable and sturdy. (Regular price: $46.00 CDN, on sale for 25% off).
I was at the checkout paying for my new earrings, above, when I saw the sales associate wearing this gorgeous bracelet. I was pleasantly surprised to find that they still had them in-store, and even more excited that it was on sale! Regular $90.00 CDN, on sale for $49.99, then marked down an additional 40% off, I scored this baby for only $29.99! Made of brass with glass stones, I almost found it to be Lady Gaga-esque (am I crazy?). I also love that the adjustable length allowed it to fit my (ridiculously) small wrists.
Known for their stylish and affordable shoes ($39.99 a pair, learn more here), Justfab.ca also offers fun purses, jewellery, and accessories. As a member/email subscriber, I recently received a $10.00 store credit, and decided to give their website a browse. I came across this statement ring (which comes in both silver and gold), and after reading all the positive reviews, decided to add it to my cart. I love that it looks like two rings, when actually, it is x-shaped at the back, which holds it together (yes, it is quite comfortable, and yes, I can still bend my finger). Did I also mention it is extremely reasonably priced at just $6.95?!
I’m always on the lookout for layering pieces, so when I spotted this hot-pink and gold bracelet, I couldn’t help but daydream about how nice it would look paired with a gold watch (does anyone else do this too?…maybe not). Again, the adjustable sizing allows it to fit my small wrists, and for the price (only $9.95), it is quite durable. If the colour pink isn’t your thing, it also comes in a really cute white/gold combo.
Winners “Natasha” Statement Earrings
Winners (similar to the US “T.J. Maxx”) offers brand names at lower prices on a per-store basis. Because of this, I can’t find them online, but I can say that Winners has a ton of great statement necklaces and earrings in-store right now. I purchased these earrings for 2 reasons: 1. because they’re shiny and beautiful and I had to have them (typical girl, right?), and 2. because royal blue is my absolute favourite colour. At just $14.99, these earrings are a bargain that I’ll be sure to get a lot of use out of.
